The Boys & Girls Club of West Cook County is a SAFE place for kids to learn and grow!
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Our Core Beliefs
The Boys & Girls Clubs provide:
A safe place to learn and grow;
Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals;
Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences;
Hope and opportunity.
Impact 2013 Strategic Plan:
Our Impact 2013 strategic plan calls for the Boys & Girls Club Movement to focus on three essential outcomes for Club members: academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good character and citizenship. While they are separate in many ways, they add up to the most essential outcome of all – young people who are prepared to enter the adult world as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
The Boys & Girls Club of West Cook County is pleased to announce that we have been selected as an official partner of Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids, an annual giving program from Payless ShoeSource. We are one of Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids' charitable agencies, which are represented in all 50 states, as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and 11 Latin American countries. The Club will take members who are the most in need and help them shop for a brand new pair of shoes.
The Boys & Girls Club of West Cook County is really excited by this wonderful gift by Payless Shoes. It is not unusual to see members wearing worn or torn shoes," said Boys & Girls Club President, David Walker. "This Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program not only helps fill a physical need, bit also a huge emotional need for our Club members."
By helping families who struggle to provide their children with basic essentials on a daily basis, the Boys & Girls Club, in partnering with the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program, hopes to relieve some of the stress parents feel and bring joy to as many children as possible.
Thank you, Payless Shoes, for such a generous program! For more information about the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program, please visit: http://www.paylessgives.com.
We're excited to announce a new family comedy, "The Stream", that helps a great cause!
